Basketball stars declare for NBA draft
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Exactly one month after UF won its first-
ever Southeastern Conference title, the specu-
lation surrounding the shape of the Gators'
backcourt next season continued to mount.
Junior guards Anthony Roberson and
Matt Walsh declared for the NBA draft on
Wednesday. But neither Roberson nor Walsh
has hired an agent, leaving them eligible to
return for their senior seasons, according to
NCAA regulations, if they choose to withdraw
from the draft by June 21.
While Roberson had been expected to
declare, Coach Billy Donovan surprisingly
announced Walsh's decision at a press confer-
ence just four hours after Roberson's initial
Donovan, however, believes Walsh is sim-
ply testing his NBA stock.
"Matt has made it very dear to me that the
only way he would go is if he's a first-round
draft pick," Donovan said.
"And I don't think Matt
thinks, right now, that he's
a first-round pick.
"He feels like right now
would be the time to see
where he has to get better
and see what NBA manag-
Walsh ers think of him."
At this point, Donovan
doesn't feel that Walsh has much understand-
ing of what NBA officials think of him.
"I can't tell you right now if.Matt Walsh is
a first-round or a second-round draft pick or
even if he would get drafted for that matter,
Donovan said. "I don't know."
Walsh has participated in the Bradenton-
based IMG Academies' basketball training
program, which has historically served as an
NBA springboard for underclassmen.
"I think if you ask Matt what is the per-
ception surrounding him in the NBA, I don't

Campus NOW undergoes abrupt change in leadership
Clash over direction cited
By DAVID COHEN
Citing a need for a broader political and social agenda, UF's
Campus National Organization for Women voted in new lead-
Since December, dissatisfied members of Campus NOW
have been covertly plotting with current and former members
to thwart former President Kelly Mangan's bid for re-election.
Mangan has been accused of pressuring members into act-
ing out her "restrictive" agenda and "silencing" women, said
Vera Brown, the group's newly-elected president.
Brown insisted her "coup" mostly was spurred by differing
views about feminism.
The women, who called themselves the Pink Panthers, suc-
ceeded Tuesday at Campus NOW's annual election.
"Dressed in a sea of pink, we walked together into the elec-
tions on Tuesday evening and changed.the future of Campus
NOW by electing new officers," Brown said in a press release.
"We could no longer act under a type of feminism that believes
that reproductive rights are the only battles that women face."
Mangan refused comment for this article.
The group's new second-in-command echoed Brown's views.

For some, bill sparks Johns Committee deja vu
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
Following the introduction into the
Florida Legislature of a controversial bill
aimed at eliminating a perceived liberal bias
in universities, longtime UF faculty members
say Florida is heading down the same road it
traveled 50 years ago when gay students
and faculty were investigated because of
their sexual orientation.
"I see elements of the Johns Committee
all over again," UF law professor Fletcher
Baldwin said of the 1956 committee named
for former acting Gov. Charley Johns. "People
are advised to contact the government if pro-
fessors or others are too radical," he said of
the committee and proposed legislation.
Baldwin, who joined UF's faculty in 1962,
said the committee used the idea of academic
protection to react against liberalism an at-
tribute he also sees in the recently proposed
"Academic Freedom Bill of Rights."
"The Johns Committee ended up
radicalizing a lot of people at UF," he said.
"Academic freedom became an issue because
they were stopping free speech and going
The Academic Freedom Bill of Rights
states that students cannot be punished if
they disagree with their professors' ideology,
and it paves legal ground for students to sue
professors who ridicule or
disrespect their ideas.
State Rep. Dennis
Baxley, R-Ocala, who
sponsored the bill, says
UF faculty just prove his
point by trying to charac-
terize him as a "right-wing
Baxley. "Relating me -to the
Johns Committee is absurd," Baxley said.'
"Criticisms from these college intellectu-
als indicate exactly what I'm talking about
- that if you don't have the right political
orientation, they'll crush you."
And while academia may accuse Baxley of
limiting free speech, he said he's just trying to
encourage it on a more-level playing field.
"These professors operate on an 'Animal
Farm' principle," said Baxley, referring to the
1946 George Orwell novel that lampooned
corruption in Communism. "They're saying,
'We are all equal, but-some are more equal
But Baldwin is not alone in his Johns
Phyllis Meek, a former UF associate dean
of students who joined the staff in 1966, said
Baxley's bill is a scare tactic meant to silence
"This is reminiscent of the McCarthy era,
when you do away with free speech," she
said. "There is a climate of fear after Sept. 11
that prevents people from coming out and
saying how ridiculous this is."
Meek said UF was the primary focus of
the Johns Committee campaign because of its
UF graduate Art Copleston, 72, remem-
bers being terrified of the committee.
"They had all the power to destroy your
life, and they knew that," said Copleston,
who was secretly gay at the time. "We lived
a secret life that would be enough to destroy
your- career or anything else you had going
Copleston said one of his favorite pro-
fessors left UF feeling committee pressure;
conversely, he was surprised that other in-
structors he knew didn't speak out against
"Professors never seemed to challenge the.
police when they stomped into the classroom
to interrogate us," he said. "They were silent
because they were afraid."
While some UF students and faculty chose
to leave campus, others were asked to leave
or told to seek psychiatric help, Meek said.
Fletcher said he was "appalled" when he
found out police officers were taking profes-
sors out of their classrooms in order to ques-
tion their allegiance to the United States.
"After 9/11, the climate in this coun-
try is ripe for new Johns Committees and
McCarthyism," he said.
And although Meek said she was disap-
pointed that more legislators haven't spoken
out against Baxley's measure, she said it al-
ways has been difficult for UF officials to take
a stand against the Legislature.
"(Former UF President John Wayne)
Reitz was very cooperative with the Johns
Committee," she said. "The idea was that,
'We'll just withhold funding from the univer-
sity if you don't cooperate.'"
Pride members hold day of silence to spotlight plight

Pride Awareness Month Assistant Director Nathan Pearman and members Andrea Garcia and Gaby Madriz
lament how the Breaking the Silence Rally, scheduled to take place Wednesday, barely came off.
* HOWEVER, ONLY FIVE
MEMBERS OF THE GROUP
ACTUALLY TOOK PART.
By ANDREA VEST
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Pride Student Union
recognized a day of silence on
Wednesday to promote the life-
style and cultural blends preva-
lent on college campuses today.
As part of Pride Awareness
Month, a group of five Pride
Student Union members rallied
on the Reitz Union North Lawn
to further the group's ultimate
The student-led day of. ac-
tion consisted of lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, queer/
questioning and allied members
of society who took a day-long
vow of silence to protest discrim-
ination and harassment.
"It symbolizes gay students
who are silenced because of anti-
homosexuality sentiment," mem-
ber Andrea Garcia said.
At 3 p.m., Pride Student Union
members and their allies broke
their vow of silence for an hour.
TGarcia shared her story about
maintaining silence during her
morning classes Wednesday.
Garcia said she overheard a
group of guys next to her telling
a story about a party they were at
the night before.
They playfully called each
other faggots and
On described the party

"People need to be educated
because they don't intend- to say
hurtful comments, but they do it
unintentionally," Garcia said.
UF junior Ben Yonker said al-
though he is not gay, he respects
those who are.
"I think that it is important
for people to be able to express
their individualism," Yonker
said. "It's their lives and they
shouldn't be criticized for their
Paradigm apartment allegedly burgled
* RENTERS ACCUSE PARADIGM OF LEAVING Gonzales said. Then he noticed a jar of change was missing.
THEIR DOOR UNLOCKED OVER SPRING BREAK. Once Gonzales returned, the two promptly filed an incident
report with the Gainesville Police Department.
By ELIZABETH PRANN
A Paradigm Properties renter claims his apartment was bur-
gled of almost $4,000 in property after employees of the complex,
left it unlocked during a series of showings over Spring Break.
UF sophomore Arthur Gonzales lives at 1536 NW Third
Ave. with a roommate, Mike Irizarry.
Gonzales said they entered into an agreement with .
Paradigm, allowing the company to show their apartment to
potential leasers for a reduction in their rent.
He said Irizarry received two messages informing the pair
that their apartment would be shown over the-break week.
Irizarry, the first to return after the break, was suspicious
when he" returned to- a fully lit and'unlocked apartment,r
"[Paradigm employees] were the last people in
our apartment; there is no forced entry."
GPD Lt. Brian Helmerson said the report, filed by Gonzales
and Irizarry, listed a black leather jacket, a high-school class
ring, a pair of Sean John blue jeans, a gold chain and pendant,
and other belongings worth a total of $3,932.
Gonzales said the alleged thief stole items which would
have gone unnoticed until used, like his black leather jacket:
He also said he found it odd that more expefisive items,
such as his laptop, weren't taken.
He said no one has a key except he, Irizarry and Paradigm.
"[Pairdirgm employees] Were the ladsf people in our-apart-
over Spring Break
ment; there is no forced entry," he said. Gonzales added that-
the representatives from Paradigm he has been in contact with
have been condescending.
"They were not working with us at all," he said.
However, Paradigm Director of Operations Eric Blevins
said his company is sympathetic.-
"We want to help them," he said "We want to do an inves-
However, Blevins said there is nothing Paradigm can do
without evidence, such as receipts for the missing items.
"The value was fairly high," he said; "We need some sort of
information to back that up and some phone records."
Blevins said the situation is being looked into by Paradigm
and that they are waiting on additional information from
Gonzales and Irizarry.
Gonzales said there were certain items stolen for which he
cannot get verification, such as a 30-year-old, $3,000 gold neck-
lace from his father.
"I had it in my drawer and I don't have time to get insur-
arice on-it;" Gonzales-said. "I'm a college student." .. .

Tau Kappa Epsilon gets new Fraternity Row address
By BRITTANY FERGUSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity
members have found a new home.
The chapter will move to 7
Fraternity Row, the address of the
former Phi Gamma Delta house.
"It's so indescribable," said fra-
ternity member Paul Meyer. "I just
can't wait to move in."
This will be the first time Tau
Kappa Epsilon will have a house on
Fraternity members held a party
in March at which they worked on
landscaping and took down the old
The new letters were unveiled
Saturday at a barbecue with alumni
and members from other chapters.
Members will move in Aug. 1.
Meyer said he hopes this will give
them more time to fix up the house.
"We've had some interior- deco-
rators scope out the place," he said.
"It's so indescribable. I just
can't wait to move in."
Meyer, who now lives in Simpson
Hall, will be one of the 30 members
to live in the new house, which has
10 single and 10 double robnms.
Tau Kappa Epsilon President
Ariel Ruiz said being in the center of
the row will give them more promi-
nence in the Greek community.
"This will help us be more recog-
nized and give us more of a Greek
unity," Ruiz said.
The house swap between Phi
Gamma Delta and Tau Kappa
Epsilon went smoothly, Ruiz said.
"They knew that we were home-
less," he said. "So, we contacted
them, and we all got together to
come up with an agreeable lease."
Phi Gamma Delta was suspend-
ed and ordered to leave their house
in October 2004. Three members
who are no longer associated with
the fraternity were accused of van-
dalizing the Sigma Chi Fraternity
house and causing approximately
$3,000 in damages.
Tau Kappa Epsilon historic of-
ficer Dustin Rollins said a house
should help increase membership.
"It will just be fun," Rollins said.

High schoolers to explore biotechnology at SFCC event
* THE COLLEGE OFFERS A TWO-
YEAR PROGRAM IN THE SUBJECT.
By SKYLER SMITH
Area high school students will explore the
frontiers of science today during SFCC's first-
ever Biotechnology Day.
Incubator in Alachua will host 150 high school-
ers for a tour of the facility and educate them
about the biotechnology business.
SFCC's outreach effort is aimed to inform
the students, who were recommended by their
respective high school guidance counselors,
about the two-year program SFCC offers to
become a biotechnician.
Twenty-five students are now enrolled in
the program, the first of its kind in Florida,
said Scott Fortner, an SFCC health sciences
adviser and coordinator of the event.
"We want to educate these kids that there
are boundless opportunities right in their
backyard," Fortner said.
Santa Fe dents will tour
Community College the incubator,
which serves as
a springboard for biotechnology companies,
and learn about jobs in the industry, incubator
manager Patti Breedlove said.
They will' then go next door to UF's
Center of Excellence for Regenerative Health
Biotechnology to watch the center's scientists
work with protein, DNA and cell cultures.
It also serves as a venue to provide a job
market for the biotechnology industry, direc-
tor Richard Snyder said.
."If we're going to try and grow this industry
locally, we need a trained workforce," he said.
He added that the national annual growth
in such jobs is as high as 17 percent.
Representatives from SFCC, UF's Center of
Excellence and the incubator all said they hope
this will become an annual event.

Power separation would
be clear, but not correct
Let's be honest here: If you're a UF student, you prob-
ably didn't read the front-page story in the Alligator
yesterday about the House proposal that would define
the separation of powers among the bodies that govern state
Who cares, right?
What's a Board of Governors, anyway?
You don't have to ask those questions, because we know
you don't want to hear the answers.
If you would have read closer, however, you would have
seen that this bill poses some dangerous possibilities for the
future of our university system.
Here's a quick multiple-choice quiz about who you think
should have certain powers over universities.
These are your possible answers: a.) the Florida Legislature;
b.) the Board of Governors; or c.) the universities themselves.
1.) Who should choose the objectives of each university
and the strategies they use to reach them?
2.) Who should approve degree programs?
3.) Who should set enrollment levels?
4.) Who should be responsible for negotiating faculty?
Hopefully, you chose straight C's: The universities should
control these basic functions of their operation.
This, unfortunately, would not be the case under the pro-
posed bill. The proposal would give all of these powers to the
Board of Governors.
Thus, a governing body with no ties to the university would
decide whether or not its degree programs were good enough.
The board would take it upon itself to decide the amount of
students that the university effectively can handle. It even
would decide if the most fundamental goals of the university
were correct regardless of how the university feels.
But don't take this to mean that the university should be
unaccountable. University officials are not elected, and thus
should not be the absolute end of the road for these decisions.
There is a very thin line, however, between state bodies
ensuring that universities don't act incorrectly and forcing
them to conform to a strict plan that has not been created by
However, the bill did not get everything wrong.
Leaving in-state tuition choices to the Legislature probably
isn't the best option, but giving the choice to universities defi-
If universities control tuition, they will hike the rates sky-
ward. UF administrators make no effort to hide the fact that
they'd like to as much as double UF's in-state tuition.
They don't seem to realize that UF's greatest asset is its
unbeatable value for Florida residents.
Making UF the best university it possibly can be is a noble
goal, but keeping UF as a great educational opportunity at a
price everyone can afford infinitely is more important.
This is where the Board of Governors comes in.
Tuition rates can't be trusted solely to the Legislature,
because they want to keep rates low so their Bright Futures
expenditures are low. Tuition rates can't be trusted solely to
the universities, because they want all the money they can get
without scaring away too many students.
The board has neither of these concerns. They are impartial
and could make the most unbiased choice of rates after consid-
ering the arguments of both sides.
Since its creation, the exact standing of the board in terms
of authority over university issues has been unclear. Well, here
is an opportunity to set the precedent: The board should be a
mediator between the Legislature and the universities, dealing
with the issues in which both sides have conflicts of interest.

Christmas trees cost big in evaluations
used to be a big believer in end-of-semester evaluations
well, whenever they were in my favor, of course. I'd
bask in the glow of above-average ratings and be inspired
to do it all again. But lately, I've become a bit jaded.
As professors, we're required to administer evaluations
toward the end of every course. I realize that not all students
view this exercise seriously. From my son, a junior on cam-
pus, I've learned how some of his classmates "Christmas
tree".their responses they randomly bubble-in the circles
on scanner forms to resemble Christmas ornaments on a tree.
These students don't read the questions or care if answers
reflect high or low scores.
Apparently, they missed the paragraph that explains how
responses "will be used by the University of Florida in mak-
ing promotion, tenure and salary-decisions."
The numbers do matter. Five is good, one is bad and the
average scores of each section we teach become part of our
permanent record of teaching effectiveness at UF. Question
No.10 plays a heavy role: Overall rating of the instructor. It's
in all capitals.
Because professors know the numbers matter, I've seen
that procedures are sometimes modified by others on a quest
for higher scores.
From my son's own experiences and observations in
Weimer Hall, here are several indiscretions: a professor once
had pizzas delivered for the final class meeting, the same day
evaluations were given; an instructor got teary-eyed and told
his students how much they'd grown together that semester,
and then distributed the forms before leaving the room (in-
structors are not to begin the class, but must send in a proxy
to read instructions and gather material); and some instruc-
tors waited until the end of class, hoping the momentum of a
particularly strong session would provide higher scores.
John Freeman I guess these tales of "Christmas
Speaking Out treeing" and inappropriate adminis-
tration of the evaluations would not
matter so much if faculty members were not constantly
pitted against one another in the race to get ahead. Bonuses,
teaching awards and promotions all require a recapitulation
of student evaluations. How valid are they really? Even mak-
ing comparisons with scores is an unscientific venture.
In my own college, awards have gone to those who sel-
dom teach (or even hold walk-in office hours). A professor
might be assigned only one course during an entire academic
year. Well, that should be a superb class! How do you com-
pare those scores with the instructor spread thin with mul-
tiple lab sections in Fall and Spring? How can you compare
a teacher who lectures and gives two multiple-choice exams
to the instructor who grades 16 weekly lab assignments and
provides written, critical comments?
Despite the fallacy of student evaluations, I don't expect
them to vanish or.change overnight. I'll continue to analyze
mine carefully and adjust classes to provide an optimal
learning experience. With 13 years of forms to look over, I
still cherish one that featured the outline of a hand giving me
"the finger" on the comment side.
But today, I can't place as much importance on the raw
scores. I know some responses have been "Christmas treed"
in. I know some colleagues stack the deck when administer-
ing evaluations. Since I can't control outside influences, I try
to ignore them and seek inspiration from the "thank-you"
notes at graduation, the invitations to students' weddings
and photographs they email me of new babies. To some
faculty members, these symbols of gratitude are the student
evaluations that matter the most.

Letters to the Editor
Dry campus might not be a crazy rumor
Editor: With your coverage of the removal
of "Drunk Bitch Friday" from the WRUF
airwaves over the last few days, it seems the
Alligator is showing concern for the possibly
unfair and inconsistent policies of President
Machen regarding UF's "alcohol problem."
Since the review of UF's alcohol policies
began, you have had coverage of that and the
issue that the administration believes there is a
significant problem with drinking on campus.
I wonder if the administration is thinking of
the fairest way to keep students safe or (un-
like your previous opinion) if the Student
Government campaign issue of preventing a
dry campus is starting to gain legitimacy.
Agendas ignored socially relevant show
Editor: UF President Bernie Machen needs
to get a grip on his power trip. In his aim to
curb alcohol abuse, Bernie, along with UF's
Board of Trustees, cancelled the entertaining
and socially informative show, "Drunk Bitch
These actions clearly violate our First-
Amendment right to free speech, which per-
mits the distribution of knowledge to'aid in

This show holds social substance that
informs people of the effects of alcohol and
whether they, too, want to be that "drunk
bitch." Of course, the show is silly and not all
in good taste, but that shouldn't discourage us
from protesting censorship.
Because-- Machen's personal values and

Machen seems to be overstepping his
boundaries as president when he imposes
his moral judgments that overlook our fun-
damental rights. His search for "indecency"
violations may end in- vain because of the
aforementioned social value- of the show as
well as its lack of sexually explicit material
and four-letter words.
In a society where alcohol is nationally ac-
ceptable as well as an issue of public concern,
this show resembles a segment of social com-
mentary that should be available to the public
All graduates do have a combined event
Editor. I was a little disheartened by
Tuesday's cover of the Alligator because of
the article "Graduates miss out," which states,
" UF will have no single event to celebrate the
graduation of the class of 2005, after plans to

Group studies alcohol culture
* THE COMMITTEE IS ONE OF THREE INVES-
TIGATING STUDENT ALCOHOL ABUSE.
By EMILY YEHLE
Although UF President Bernie Machen is spearhead-
ing an effort to solve the "serious problem" of students'
drinking habits, a committee studying local alcohol cul-
ture discussed on Wednesday the need for students to
realize most of their peers do not drink excessively.
While a UF survey showed that 50 percent of stu-
dents binge and that 73 percent of students under 21
drink, most students are responsible about alcohol use,
said Jess Johnson, a Student Affairs executive assistant.
"There was a consensus that the student body prob-
ably perceives that drinking is more prevalent than it is,"
he said of the Wednesday meeting.
I The survey defined "binge drinking" as taking five
or more servings of alcohol in a row.
Machen brought the issue to the forefront this year
by prohibiting alcohol sponsorship at events held in the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center, suspending a radio seg-
ment and pledging to take alcohol advertisements off
UF-owned radio and television programming.
The culture committee also is a product of recent con-
cem among administrators about student drinking.
It is one of three groups created at a meeting of UF
and Gainesville officials in.February; the other two focus
on alcohol access and enforcement.
Eventually, all three will make recommendations as
to what is needed to change an environment that seems
to encourage students to drink, said
Student Activities Director Lohse
Beeland, who also is co-chairman of
the culture committee.
Beeland said she was unsure of
,, when the committees' goals would
be met. The committee dealing with
access and promotion will have its
Machen second meeting today in Reitz Union
Room 272 from 3 to 5 p.m.
"What we owe the student body is to create an at-
mosphere where they don't feel pressured to drink,"
Since it was the culture committee's first meeting, no
decisions were made, Beeland said.
However, members began to identify what the alco-
hol culture is now and what it should be.
As for Machen's recent moves, Beeland said the com-
mittee didn't talk about them.
But pulling ads from UF's sports programming was
recommended by a.Student Affairs alcohol committee to
the University Athletic Association a year ago, she said.
The culture committee is well on its way to finding
other ways to change the drinking culture, Beeland said.
"I thought it was extremely productive. I was really
impressed with a lot of the comments students had."

CANSIECO, from page 1
Another pointed out that, in the book, Canseco said he ran a
3.9-second 40-yard dash, which Canseco described as a typo.
Another facetiously asked Canseco where in his book he
wrote about beating his wife and about his jail time.
"If you'd like to rephrase that question and ask it prop-
erly, I'd be willing to answer," Canseco said. His inquisitor just
One asked for an autograph, which Canseco signed for him.
One asked for advice on a fantasy baseball trade. One asked
about his relationship with Madonna.
Canseco was more serious during the speech and pre-speech
press conference, though. When asked what effect "Juiced"
will have in the future of steroids and sports, he said he didn't
know, but he contended that people actually wouldn't be able
to know the real Jose Canseco just by reading .the book.
"I don't think anyone's even come close to figuring me out
yet. Period," he said. "Maybe I do it on purpose, maybe I don't.
We have 15 or 20 individuals here. Everyone's probably got a
different opinion of me. If they're asked on an essay what you
think Jose Canseco really is down deep, I guarantee not one of
you would get it right. Not even close."
Although Canseco said he used steroids for years, he
doesn't necessarily condone it now.
"The bottom line is, right now, just don't do it," he said.
"You can prevent colon
cancer, even beat it."

Paggi said Mangan was only interested in acting on her
own personal feminist agenda regarding reproductive rights.
Paggi said she believes the group's focus should be broader.
"It was very, very, very personal," she said. "That's a very
important thing to fight for; however, we need to diversify our
actions. We haven't done anything for child care."
Paggi said Mangan would pressure her and other members
into coming to group events.
"I've been made to feel guilty because of my part-time job
and because I'm a student," Paggi said.
Mangan, who also is a UF student, has worked at both the
Civic Media Center and the Iguana.
Membership Director-elect Havre De Hill said she was "se-
lectively omitted" from receiving e-mails from the organization
despite being an official member under Mangan's reign.
As a result of conflicts, about five members started meeting
at a hotel to:speak about their distaste for the path the group
was headed down. Around that time, the dissatisfied members
began calling themselves the Pink Panthers, partly because
Mangan believes that the color is "oppressive," members said.
"It was very hard to speak out against these
people. They were very controlling and au-
thoritative. Now that we have a change in the
group, we feel that we will be able to work with
them. We want to do different actions."

Despite the feuding, Brown insisted she won the election not
only because of Mangan's leadership techniques but also be-
cause of her "restrictive" policies and dated views of feminism.
"It was an entire leadership style," Brown said, but added,
"It was.bigger than just our president."
Brown said Mangan's insistence on voicing opinions solely
about contraception alienated minority women and the gay
and transgender community. She said some members were
"silenced" by Mangan and told to accept her views.
Paggi added that Mangan was involved in Gainesville Area
NOW and Gainesville Women's Liberation, which she said
tried to control the student group through Mangan.
Mangan "would forward the e-mails to them," she said.
"They would all be way too involved with our student group.
It was ridiculous. They weren't part of Campus NOW."
Paggi said talking to Gainesville Area NOW and Gainesville
Women's Liberation was difficult.
S"It was very hard to speak out against these people," she
said. "They were very controlling and authoritative. Now that
we have a change in the group, we feel that we will be able to
work with them. We want to do different actions."
"Elections happen in every campus organization," said
Candi Churchill, a member of both Gainesville Area NOW and
Gainesville Women's Liberation. "This is an example of The
Alligator trying to exploit this issue. Kelly Mangan is a leader
in a national movement to win the moring-after pill over the
counter and will continue to do great work."
Paggi said that although new members were voted into of-
fice, the group will share duties "so different people can get a
chance to lead the meeting."
Brown summed it up in the release.
"It was time for Campus NOW to make anew start by includ-
ing all women and being active towards everyone's issues."
She said she still invites Mangan to be a member.

Although Adderall niay be overused on

medication to curb the symptoms of ADD.
"I was diagnosed with ADD this past
summer," UF sophomore Megan Roth said.
"I don't know how I survived my freshman
year of college without Adderall."
Roth, along with other students who suf-
fer from ADD, had difficulties concentrating
on a specific subject and would constantly
lose her train of thought.
"Studying was always a frustrating task
for me," Roth said. "Instead of reading
the material, I would start thinking about
random things, like whether or not people

Roth said she does not feel comfortable

makes me depressed, but I also don't like the
thought of giving it out to everyone else,"
"I always get offers from people who

Jury makes robbery conviction
Convict blames act on drugs
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
It took a jury less than 30 minutes
Wednesday to find a Gainesville man
guilty of bank robbery.
After a mere day-long trial,
Alachua County Judge Mary Day
Coker sentenced Douglas Griggs to
15 years in prison.
But just before she did so, Coker
questioned Griggs' choice of venue.
"I'm just curious why did you
pick the bank your brother used, the
one he cashed your paychecks at?"
"I was on so many drugs I was re-
ally in a dream world," Griggs said.
On the morning of Oct. 12, Griggs,
dressed in a green flannel shirt and a
dark Caterpillar cap, walked into the
Wachovia Bank at 3838 NW 13th St.
and slid a note across the counter.
"The note said, 'Bank Robbery
Have Gun 100.00, 50.00, 20.00 put
in bag. Don't [expletive] with me,'"
witness Marcia Miller said.
After Miller placed $7,070 into the
man's black Jansport backpack, he ex-
ited the bank and went to the Sunshine
Inn down the street to call a cab.
Griggs told the taxi driver, Edwin
Ricci, to take him a few blocks north.
Just after Ricci pulled onto
Northwest 13th Street, a Gainesville
Police officer on the lookout for the
robber a "scruffy white male" -
drove up beside Ricci and motioned
for him to pull over.
.'.. When Griggs fled,
Local the officer told the man
SChu-s to stop so he might
speak with him.
"He looked me
straight in the eye and said 'I don't
think so,' and walked away, back-
ward," officer John Gates said.
Then Griggs ran.
Twenty minutes after the robbery,
Griggs was arrested. His front pocket
contained $900 in cash and a robbery
note was found in his wallet.
Griggs also wore a gray T-shirt
with "Air Force Football" on it, from
which "OR" is visible peeking out
from the top of the robber's shirt in
stills taken from bank cameras.
But this does not mean Griggs
committed the crime, defense attor-
ney Curtis Elmore said.
"Use your common sense this is
the town with the University of Florida
in it, and there are tons of T-shirts with
the letters "OR" on them," he said..
And though Elmore justified his
.client's decision to run by saying
Griggs thought he was being pursued
for a previous trespassing charge,
prosecuting attorney Geoffrey Fleck
said that assumption is unreasonable.
"No, Mr. Griggs fled because he
had just stolen $7,000 from a bank,"
The flannel shirt and a portion of
the money were recovered from the
backseat of Ricci's cab.
According to reports, Griggs told
police he robbed the bank in order to

Forum panel examines victims' rights
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Speaking to a mostly female audience
Wednesday, three panelists raised questions
and encouraged students to form their own
opinions on issues that included women's
rights, victims' rights and human rights.
Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood
sponsored the panel discussion, entitled
"Speak Up, Speak Out!" in the Reitz Union
Tanja van der Veen, a victim advocate
with the University Police Department's
Office of Victim Services, spoke about
sexual assault and victims' rights to the
group of about 25.
"A lot of times, people aren't really
aware that this is reality for a lot of people,"
She cited statistics from several sources,
noting that exact figures are hard to come by.
Some victims don't think their experi-
ences fit the definition of sexual assault,
and others simply choose not to report the
crime, she said.
"That number 'four' you might see on
the UPD Web site is virtually meaningless,"
van der Veen said of crime statistics.
One in four women and one in six men,
for example, will be victims of sexual abuse
during their lifetimes.
Also, when college women are victim-
ized, 90 percent of the time it's by someone
they know, and 90 percent of the time it oc-
curs in a residence, she said.
This debunks the stereotype of sexual
assault coming from a stranger in a dark
alley or parking garage, she said.
"It's happening in places where people
live, where people feel safe, where people
feel comfortable," she said.
Van der Veen also spoke about alcohol
and its role in sexual assault.
Sarah Kovner, a visiting UF assistant.
history professor, spoke about human traf-
ficking in Japan and issues that surround it,
including U.S. pressure on Japan to enact
laws against it.
The Japanese government is attempting
to crack down on the practice so the United
States and other countries will view it in a
better light, she said.
However, attempts by the Japanese
government to create stricter laws against
human trafficking have met with public
outcry from media, lawmakers, business
people and the public.
"A lot of people are making a lot of
money out of this," she said.
She posed several questions to the audi-
ence for personal consideration, including
whether or not the United States has the
right to intervene.
Trysh Travis, a professor in the depart-
ment of women's studies, spoke of a recent
panel she attended that addressed women
in politics and how it made her question the
role of feminism in younger generations.
Though women outnumbered their
male counterparts 2-to-1, the men asked
twice as many questions. When questions
were addressed to the female panelists, the
male panelists frequently would chime in,
"The audience was kind of allowing
the older white men to run the show," she
During the question-and-answer ses-
sion, one student observed that women
often are less assertive.
Travis urged students to consider conse-
quences women face for speaking up.
"You might be burned as a witch, as
many women have been. You might be
called a femi-Nazi, as I have been."

Atlantic to serve Spam
By COLIN MCCANDLESS
The Atlantic serves up the delicious
canned beat sensations of Miami's DJ
Le Spam and the Spam Allstars, back
by popular demand on Friday, April 22.
Umm, you like Spam.
DJ Le Spam has planted the seeds of
a harmonic crop and cultivated a sultry
musical hybrid that fuses electronic ele-
ments and turntables with Latin, funk
and hip-hop. The band's melodies il-
lustrate the myriad influences of salsa,
reggae, African dance, jazz and gospel
music that imbue their tracks and inspire
their jams. The combination of genres
the group has harvested yields an eclec-
tic sound appealing to divergent tastes.
In order to sow such diverse grooves,
the members of the Spam Allstars in-
corporate a wide variety of instruments
into their songs. Their current line-up
is comprised of seven people: DJ Le
Spam (Andrew Yeomanson) who spins
turntables and samplers, Tomas Diaz on
timbales, AJ Hill and Steve Welsh work
the saxophones, John Speck plays trom-
bone, Mercedes Abal handles flute and
Adam Zimmon strums guitar. The group
merges these different elements together
flawlessly, producing aesthetic musical
pieces receiving critical acclaim from re-
views in Rolling Stone, Newsweek and
the Washington Post.
The band has appeared on "Good
Morning America," "CBS This Morning"
and NPR's "All Things Considered." In
addition, DJ Le Spam and the Spam
Allstars won a Latin Grammy in 2003 for
their third album "Fucata Live," a record
originally mixed outside the studio.
Their tour dates reflect a growing
popularity, including shows in New
York, New Orleans and Atlanta and a re-
cent appearance at the Langerado Music
Festival in Sunrise, Fla., along with
String Cheese Incident and Umphrey
DJ Le Slam and the Spam Allstar's
chemistry and improvisation contrib-
ute to their touring success and rise to
recognition. Their motley mix of styles
converges skillfully on stage, creating
unique and engaging live performances.
They rocked The Atlantic twice already
earlier this year, playing sets that electri-,.
fied and energized the elbow-to-elbow
DJ Le Spam just released a fourth
album in 2004, their first studio effort to
date, entitled "Spam Allstars Contra Los
Roboticos Mutantes." Don't miss your
chance to see an accomplished national
act in an intimate atmosphere when DJ
Le Spam and the Spam Allstars return to
The Atlantic, situated at 15 N. Main St.
Like Taco Bell, this multi-layered mu-
sical burrito is available cheap (7 bones
at the door) and late (doors open at 10
p.m., shows usually start around 11:30
p.m. and last until 2 a.m.).

'Godspell' blesses GCP
Sinners and saints: This is no ordinary
"Godspell," the musical story time that
plays out vignettes of the Gospel, graces
the Gainesville Community Playhouse
Unlike any other musical, "Godspell"
mixes script with role playing, leaving a
lot of room for improvisation. This per-
formance really takes its creative liberties,
making an even more enjoyable show for
What's great about "Godspell" is it's
an ensemble piece. Everyone is important,
because there are no leads well, besides
Jesus. Each individual character brings
something special to the stage, yet together,
the characters are an energetic unit. Every
role-playing scenario showcases a different
actor's voice or personality.
For such a small-scale performance,
the actors were very gifted vocally, re-
ally showcasing what talent the Gainesville
community has to offer. Hits such as "Day
by Day" had audience members tapping
their toes and singing along with every
Rudy Lurz's portrayal of Jesus.
However, was a little perplexing. I un-
derstand that Jesus, in terms of this play,
is supposed to be a kind-hearted, gentle
soul that leads the ensemble in preaching
his ways. Lurz, however, was calm, really
calm. Calm enough that I was wondering
what he was doing to pre-game before the
It almost seemed as if the show was
one place, and whatever was going on in
Jesus' mind was somewhere else. It was in-
teresting to watch

make fun of him anymore the en-
semble was good enough to completely
forget about what Jesus was babbling on
Maureen Demers chose to direct this
play in a modem setting, using colorful,
everyday garb for the costumes and a street
alley for the background. It was a change
from the retro version of this show I've
witnessed in the past. The modem look
really proved that, no matter what setting,
the words of "Godspell" are applicable
As my last review of the year, I would
just like to say how great it's been to get a
taste of entertainment around Gainesville.
Some shows made me want to cry with joy,
while some made me want to cry from the
misery of watching. I apologize for any-
thing negative I have written I am no
expert, but I always call it like I see it.
"Godspell" was a blessing as my last
show for the year.
Showtimes are Wednesday through
Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The show will run until April 23, and tick-
ets can be purchased at Omni Book Store or
at the door.

Side Bar to raise Voices
By KEELEY MCCARTY
Voice of the People sounds almost too
good to be straight out of Gainesville. It's
feel-good hip-hop: not what you'd listen
to on the way to the club but maybe at
home drinking with friends on a Sunday
Messenger and EtchIne spit the hip-
hop verses, and Laurie Pierre and Lauren
Shure provide jazzy vocals on several
tracks, breaking the inevitable monotony
The Gainesville group formed around
February' 2004 and just finished its first
album, "What We're Feeling," which is
being independently released. Original
member Pierre recently left the group due
to creative differences, and Voice of the
People gained a full band of two guitar-
ists, a bassist and a drummer.
"I don't want to just do hip-hop that
you could listen to on the radio," says

Hector Galvez, alias Etch1ne.
Galvez says with the back-up instru-

Galvez is a third-year political science

Voice of the People's music is fresh and

'Born into Brothels' captures pain in photographs
P photographs are powerful
things. They have the power to
draw you in, to make you feel
what someone in the picture is feel-
ing, to take you out of the world you
know and throw you into whatever
the camera captured.
"Born into Brothels" is about pic-
tures with this power, pictures taken
by a group of young children living
in the dark world of Calcutta's red-
In 1998, co-director of the docu-
mentary and New York photojour-
nalist Zana Briski, ventured into that
world, living with prostitutes in a
filthy maze of death, sexual abuse
While she had originally traveled
to India to document the lives of the
women who lived in this darkness, it
was their children who immediately
embraced and inspired her.
They were fascinated by her and
her camera, and when she taught
them how to use it, an idea dawned
upon her. Though she still took pic-
tures, she handed down her gift of
photography to these children, the
sons and daughters of prostitutes.

AttheHipp dents and
email@example.com sent them to
harsh realities of the inescapable
nightmare of life in the brothels.
In 2000, Briski sought the help of
documentary editor Ross Kauffman.
Together they created a film that fol-
lows the extraordinary group of bud-
ding photographers through a world
unlike anything we can relate to.
What makes this documentary
beautiful and heartbreaking is that
it's all told through the children. It's
their stories, their lives, their cameras
that capture the images of hopeless-
ness and tragedy.
It's not all sad, though. This docu-
mentary educates and inspires, prov-
ing that heroism can take any form.
In this case, photography was the
hero and the light in the otherwise
bleak lives of children who at an
early age had already come to accept
life as painful and without hope.
If you've ever relived a moment
in a picture, if you've ever been
moved by something frozen on film,
if you've ever felt the power of a pic-
ture, go see this documentary.

Award for best documentary feature,
"Born into Brothels" opens Friday

Columnists weigh in on possible annual matchup with Hurricanes
As the winner of the "Be Athletics
Director For A Day" giveaway, your
agenda is loaded.
You, Mr. Jeremy Foley, need to inject
Anthony Roberson with reality serum. And'
then there's that 50-year extension you need
to Concorde to Urban Meyer's villa.
But there's one issue much more relevant
than either of these quandaries.
Duck or tortillas?
;-.Assuming the NCAA agrees to add a 12th
game to the Division I football schedule, you
need to choose between playing Miami or
playing in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
That's the exact dilemma Foley and the
Gators will probably face in the near future.
UF's faithful has been itching for a yearly
stab at the Hurricanes, but do they want to
scratch a green and orange rash of continued
embarrassment? Fans want to annihilate
Florida State and Miami every season. Yeah,
and I'd like Shaq to play 'til he's 60. And
have him teach me how to dunk.
Sure, everyone can dream, but Gator
Nation needs to fasten its collective head to
its reptilian neck.
By agreeing to play Miami every season,
the Gators would be willingly checking off
on the most difficult schedule in college
The SEC will always provide its teams
with one of the nation's most challenging
schedules. And with Miami joining FSU in
the Atlantic Coast Conference, UF and FSU
will boast the nation's fiercest non-confer-
ence rivalry. That alone ensures that the
Gators will always draw one of the toughest
schedules. Add Miami and UF's strength of
schedule would break the Richter scale.
For no good reason, either.
Just look at what Southern California
did last season. Playing powerhouses like
Colorado State, Brigham Young and a bevy
of PAC-10 Pop Warner teams,- the Trojans
won the title.
will always field
a tougher slate of
games than USC.
So according to
Louis the Pythagorean
Anastasis Theorem and a
Louis in the Bullpen dash of common
email@example.com sense, you can de-
duct the following:
If UF adds a medi-
ocre team to its 2006 schedule and wins out,
they'll be doing the salsa in Tempe, Ariz.
For some, the mere thought of playing
Miami every season is reason enough to
schedule the Hurricanes. But face Miami
and FSU every year, combined with Georgia,
Tennessee and Co. and you've got- a recipe
for several dramatic losses.
How excited were you to play Miami
when Willis McGahee rushed for 204 yards
in a 41-16 Swamp beating in 2002?
How enthused were you to play Miami
when the Canes scored 28 unanswered
points to flush the Gators out of the Orange
Bowl in 2003?
But maybe you're still not convinced.
If so, ask the Gators' fans who attended
the 2003 game if they enjoy playing Miami.
My roommates can testify to one UF fan
whose skin was spray-painted orange and
green by a herd of intoxicated Hurricanes'
nuts. And that's definitely not an exception.
So why not schedule the Hurricanes
twice every four years?
That way you can munch on a healthy
mix of duck and tortillas. Or sugar. Or or-
anges. Or roses.
So visit with Peep. Acquire Meyer's John
Hancock. Have your duck.
You can always watch the Fiesta Bowl
I've heard it before UF plays in the tough-
est conference in football. The Gators can't'
possibly roll through the grueling SEC and
play rivals Florida State and- Miami every
That sounds like loser talk to me.

he grew up in tornadoes and cornfields

derstand the blood and guts behind the
Once upon a time, the state of Florida,

There was never a question which team

And while there were some nice chapters
to the UF-Florida State rivalry, nothing com-
pared to the nasty history between the,Gators
and the Hurricanes.
UF fans may despise the Seminoles, and
vice versa, but there's still some semblance of
a friendly rivalry.
UF folk call FSU fans stupid and unedu-
cated while FSU fanatics call UF fans dorks
and girly frat boys wearing the unappealing
combination of orange and blue.
But in the end, everyone downs about a
dozen beers and makes cracks about, that's
right, the Hurricanes.
Everybody hates Miami. This is the same
team that once landed in Tempe for the Fiesta'
Bowl dressed in camouflage, ready to wage
chemical warfare on Penn State.
This is the same team that has the weakest
fanbase in the state b.ut still manages to land
the biggest recruits. This is the same team that
signed Willie Williams. Enough said.
There are so many reasons to despise
Miami. Florida State gets to do something
about it. The Gators? Well, Urban, assuming

For all of you out there (Louis, you in-
cluded) who. are ready to send UF to the
Rose Bowl to face Southern California for the
national championship, you obviously have
plenty of confidence in the Gators.
So with your logic, Miami should be a

Slower but steady delivery gives O'Day hope for Major League Draft
O 'DAY, from page 31
Mom's. That's from years of conditioning, be-
ing in trouble."
UF coach Pat McMahon graduated from
the same high school as O'Day, Jacksonville
Bishop Kenny. McMahon was drafted out of
high school by the New York Mets, but opted
to play in college first.
O'Day didn't have that choice. In fact, he
was a walk-on at UF.
McMahon has been pleasantly surprised
with O'Day's performance, despite having to
redshirt his freshman year.
"He came to us and tried on," McMahon

said. "At the time, we had a lot of numbers of
arms. We-had to make a move to take base-
ball away from him for a year, but he worked
in the summer and worked very hard.
"I was so proud of him coming back out,
and he made the ball club and has become an
integral part to our pitching staff, and that's
to his credit."
But, how does a pitcher who wasn't of-
fered a scholarship out of high school end
up being trusted to pitch in the most crucial
parts of a game?
"Where a lot of people shy away, where
adversity sets in, they end up quitting and
wanting to run," McMahon said. "Not
Darren O'Day. He stepped in there and has
done a tremendous job for us. I'm so proud
O'Day's fastball tops out at 88 mph. His
slider embarrassed many opposing batters
this season. As a sidearm pitcher, he looks
like the prototype middle reliever you would
see in the big leagues.
"I'm not going to light the radar gun up,
but I can get guys out," O'Day said. "I think
lately there's been more of a trend; some
teams are drafting on results. They still like
guys that can throw 95 [mph], but teams like
the [Oakland] A's are taking people that can
get batters out even if they don't light the
radar gun up. That's encouraging for guys
O'Day is eligible for the MLB Draft in
June. He knows that scouts are in attendance
at most of the games he's pitched, and they
could call him at season's close.
"If that comes along, it's a great opportu-
nity, and I'll definitely pursue it," O'Day said.
"But I always have my backup plan, so I'm
not going to depend on [baseball]. I definitely
want to pursue it, give it a try, see how far it
O'Day has plenty of confidence that he
can succeed at any level of baseball.
"I see these guys pitching in the major
leagues that throw like me, same kind of
pitcher as me," O'Day said. "I think, 'Men, I
could do that.' Even if it is just to pitch one or
two outs a game every other day, I'd love that
life. It's always been a dream of mine to play
in the major leagues."
Looking at O'Day's statistics, there isn't
much to criticize. The number that might
have room for improvement is his fielding
percentage. O'Day committed two errorsTast
season, and remembers each play vividly.
"That's one of the things I pride myself
on, is holding the runners close," O'Day said.
"The pickoff at second base, it was just a total
lack of thought by me. It was at Tennessee.
I read too much into [shortstop Justin] Tordi
on the pickoff. I thought he was going to the
base, and I just threw it into center field. It
was such a stupid mistake that I made, it
was at a crucial point in the game, at a crucial
game in the season. I won't forget that. That's
what you gotta do to learn from it."
While he has a photographic memory in
the classroom and on the field, he has also
learned to put mistakes in the past.
"The biggest part of closing is failure,"
O'Day said. "You have to learn how to put
it behind you.T'm not [L.A. Dodgers closer]
Eric Gagne. I'm not going to save 71 games
in a row. You have to be able to put it behind
you, and go out there the next time and get
the job done.
"You gotta learn from it. You think about
what you could have done different, but if
you-feel like you did your best, you just tell
yourself, 'That guy was better than me that
day, and I'll be better than him today.'"
"You remember the failures, that's for
sure, but you also remember the good times,"
O'Day said. -
There are plenty of good times to come.

Rehab center opens door to athletes
By NICK ZACCARDI
The NFL is invading Gator Country.
The Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars won't
be playing at the Swamp anytime soon,
but the teams could employ the resources
of the acclaimed UF sports medicine pro-
-Players would only be sent to Gainesville
at the discretion of team doctors to seek di-
agnosis rather than actual treatment or long-
term rehabilitation, said Dr. Peter Indelicato,
UF sports medicine division chief.
"We just have an unwritten understand-
ing that if they want to send their athletes to
us for second opinions, then we'd be more
than happy to accommodate them as best as
we can," he said. "We've got a national and,
in my particular case, an international repu-
tation in sports medicine."
Indelicato's standing in the medical com-
munity, combined with his NFL experience,
has led Joseph Diaco, Tampa Bay team physi-
cian, to Gainesville.
"Pete Indelicato's one of the finest sur-
geons in the United States, as far as sports
medicine is concerned," Diaco said. "He was
the team physician with the Miami Dolphins,
so I have gotten to know Pete very well over
But as far as the recently-opened $25 mil-
lion -UF Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
Institute is concerned, Diaco doesn't foresee
sending Buccaneers players to Gainesville to
"I think it's more amenable to former [UF]
players in the draft that want to go back there
and take advantage of that," Diaco said.
That's where Indelicato's duties as the
University Athletic Association head team
physician kick in.
"We have a high-tech motion analysis
lab here," Indelicato said. "We can use high-
tech graphics to evaluate a golfer's swing
or a pitcher's throwing motion or a tennis
But, for Indelicato, football has recently
become his priority.
Several UF football players have already
taken a sneak peek at the institute, including
freshman defensive end Javier Estopinan,
freshman defensive lineman Brandon Daniel
and sophomore defensive tackle Marcus
"They determine whether or not
he is really recovered from the
injury to the point where he is
very unlikely to encounter the
same problem again."
Dr. Peter Indelicato
UF sports medicine division chief
Indelicato is working with Estopinan to
help him recover from a torn anterior cruci-
ate ligament in his left knee, suffered during
a running drill. He and other physicians at
the institute operated on Estopinan's knee

"He'll be doing physical therapy,"
Indelicato said. "Some of it will be done here
[at the institute], and some of it will be done
at the training room at the south end zone.
But I think the value is the convenience and

Estopinan said he's already on the road
"The rehab center has done a great job
getting me off my feet," he said. "I'm already
walking. I'm making great progress."
Indelicato expects Estopinan to spend
approximately nine hours per week in train-
ing and rehabilitation, and Estopinan has no
problem with that.
"The more time the better," the linebacker
said. "I go every day, and I think that's what
helps you get on the field the fastest. And it's
The five-month-long rehab takes place
over a series of steps, Indelicato said.
"The process first involves regaining the
motion in their knee," he said. "Then we do
some early strength training, but after about
six weeks we do some aggressive strength
That's where the road to recovery reaches
Before the comeback is complete, the
6-foot-1, 241-pound Estopinan must train
"He has the benefit of the activity with-
out the negative effects of body weight,"
Indelicato said. "We have him exercise in
sometimes chest-deep water on a treadmill
type of device."
Throughout the process, the institute's
staff will use about seven high-speed digital
cameras to monitor deficiencies invisible to
the naked eye.
"They determine whether or not he is
really recovered from the injury to the point
where he is very unlikely to encounter the
same problem again," Indelicato said.
And perhaps nobody is a bigger fan of the
institute than Coach Urban Meyer.
"Coach Meyer is impressed with the
institution over there," Estopinan said. "He
thinks it's amazing. He thinks it's the best
thing at the university for athletes."

He says he always wanted

1. Glory, Hallelujah Champs at last
After 90 years of struggles and would-be championship seasons,
it finally happened. In Gainesville, the year 1996 has become
as infamous as 1776. Still the only national football title to UF's
credit, the Gators doma te II in tiae season finale to
Florida State and werefortunate- h-6gh to have a rematch with the
Seminoles in the -Sugar Bowl.
It wasn't even cite UF crushed FSU,522&0.
Spurrier's hiring jhad surely paid off, anidfor one season, no
team matched the Gatprs.
"A lot of divine guidan hchelped s out this year," Spurrier said.
"We realize that and we have a -lotto be thankful."
Football has always been the heart and soul of UF sports, and
there's no moment comparable to the day when UF finally won it all.
